WSBK » EXCLUSIVE: Loris Baz - Q&A Interview


Loris was employed by Kawasaki, and he went against the teams wishes by actively hampering their chances of winning the title, after having made the bonehead mistake of taking out his own teammate in Qatar. Forget the whole Sykes/Baz ill feeling, this should be about Loris poor decisions in relation to the team he was supposedly riding for. Sykes has been petulant, but he has a point. With teammates like Baz who needs enemies. Kawasaki will remember how Baz ignored their wishes, and other teams will have taken note as well. Baz may be back in the superbike paddock looking for a ride in a couple of years and he might find some closed doors.

MotoGP » Moto3: Jack Miller wins, Alex Marquez champion


Lol at the ignorant bashing Jack cos he wasn't smiling. Like you'd all be high fiving everyone if you'd just lost the title by 2 points! There was no bad sportsmanship, Jack shook Alex's hand and said well done after the race. He won the most races of anyone on a bike noticeably slower on longer straights, the only KTM within shouting distance of the title, and all some poeple can do is whinge that he wasn't happy enough when he lost the title. Looks like the Crash losers have chosen the next Stoner to hate on.

MotoGP » Moto3: Jack Miller wins, Alex Marquez champion


The difference is Mugello was just a mistake by Miller, which he was also ruled out of the race as a result of. Whereas at Aragon Marquez knew Miller was there and didn't leave racing room on the dry line. He knew what the result of that would be, it wasn't a mistake. He's not obliged to leave that racing room with Miller on the outside, but I can fully understand why Miller would have been keen to give as good as he got in subsequent races. He had to anyway or the title was effectively over after that disaster. Valuable lesson learnt by Miller in Aragon either way, don't expect to be given racing room on the outside of a wet corner, especially when its your main title challenger.

MotoGP » Moto3: Jack Miller wins, Alex Marquez champion


papcicles: Spin, spin, spin. You seem to be ignorant of what has happened all season. If you actually watch the races again, you will understand. FYI: I love Stoner.
I've watched every race this season, including the races where Jack was roughed up earlier on. He made a dumb mistake in Mugello, but he's hardly the first rider in Moto3 to have done that! He didn't fly off the handle or protest after the Aragon incident, and he rode hard but fair as judged by race direction for the rest of the season, which is the only standard that matters if you want to win a title. It seems some people expect him to just be a target out there, well he'd be nowhere in the title with that attitude rather than being the only rider to challenge the Honda dominance. Whats 'spin' is people trying to make out there was bad sportsmanship involved just because Miller was diappointed. I reiterate, he congratulated Alex after the race on camera.

MotoGP » MotoGP stars talk WSBK team orders


The simple fact is Loris let personal feelings get in the way of team success. He was stupid to have taken Sykes out and has now shown that his ego is more important to him than the factory hes riding for. I agree with Lorenzo and Randy, its a bad precedent to be setting this early in his career and he may come to regret it.

MotoGP » Dovizioso to conclude best Ducati season since Stoner


Guna4699: Rossi was pushing all the time even with Ducati... he wasn't cruising around to get the pay check... thing is he didn't want to change his riding style to suit when Ducati was adamant to keep their developing philosophy without changing... both takes the blame... either one should have made the initiative to adjust and adopt to eachother... neither did...
Um Ducati gave Rossi about 12 different frames to use over two seasons. It wasn't for Ducatis lack of trying that Rossi didn't succeed. Compare that to how many developments Stoner got in 4 years, and everyone was quite prepared to lay the blame at Stoners feet for Ducatis poor development back then!

MotoGP » Rossi: Stoner at Laguna my best battle


Harryx:
Desh: I'm a Stoner fan, and I love that race as well. I know Rossi won that battle and he rode a smart race by preventing Stoner from being able to run the super committed lines the Ducati needed to run to be fast, but the reason I like watching that race is seeing how Stoner wrestled that under steering Duc around such a tight circuit at such a speed that if Rossi on the superior Yamaha had allowed Stoner even 1 complete clear lap at the front the race would have been over.
mmh onesided. Remember it was 2008 that is 1 year after Stoners WC on the ultra fast Ducati which, in comparison, was the better or at least equally fast 800cc bike. The Ducati powered past on every straight and semi-straight. The Yamaha was able to outbrake stoner allowing Rossi to control the race. Both were equal over a lap and had different advantages, Stoner lost his nerve which is, sorry, not untypical for him...
Actually by that stage the top speed difference was not big, and Laguna is far from a top speed track anyway. The Ducati there was a truck, it was unbeleivable that Stoner went in as favourite on that bike. Without him Ducati would literally have been a laughing stock. Since Rossi went to Ducati and failed to make any impact whatsoever, and discovered the truth about the bike and company I'm sort of surprised he still regards Laguna 08 as his greatest race. As a commentator said on another site, he must now realise that Stoner was basically bringing a hammer to a gun fight and still regularly winning. When Stoner got on a good bike with the RCV and it was Rossi's job to drag the Ducati up to speed he wasn't even in the same postcode.

MotoGP » Rossi: Stoner at Laguna my best battle


@ madjag of course Rossi won the race fair and square, he did the best he could with the tools at his disposal, as did Stoner. ( Though Rossi was very lucky to get away with his mistake at the corkscrew where he ran off - he could easily have lost ansecond there or crashed and Stoner would have disappeared). Im just saying Rossi's tool was a fair bit better than Stoners which is obvious looking back. Consider this - the next best Ducati in the 08 title was only 12th, and Stoners teammate Melandri was sent to a psychiatrist he was so mentally damaged by the bike. On the other Hand Yamaha filled 3 ofthe top 7 positions in the championship. Rossi has since admitted he couldnt ride the Ducati like Stoner, which theres no shame in, neither could anybody else. But it was Stoners brilliant talent which made that battle possible on the Ducati.
